Just saw Passenger play in the Waterfront, good venue. Did not know there was seating, will get seating next time I visit. Left a few minutes before the show finished to get a taxi, as apparently it is difficult to get a taxi after with the crowds. Drinks are very VERY expensive. £9 for one beer and one wine... Security... More

I have been to a few concerts at the waterfront and have always found service at both downstairs and upstairs bars to be very slow. I went to watch Passenger last night and faced a long wait at the bar to buy drinks as staff were very slow, some younger staff were unable to pour pints and all eight members... More

Very nice walk from the town to the marina, passed all of the boats. Pleasant to sit on the benches and watch the world go by.

I have been to the Waterfront Hall in Belfast more times than I can remember and my impression has always been the same. This is an amazing concert venue and with regards to the view there is not a bad seat in the house However if you go to a Concert which relies on amplification then you will be sorely... More

We went to see the excellent Romesh Ranganathan and thoroughly enjoyed the show. Our complaint, which is the same every time we go to this venue is to do with the organisation or lack of it, in the small downstairs bar areas. The service is dreadfully slow, while some staff are just walking around telling the lengthy queue that there... More

Modern architecture, unfortunately a new modern building has been build aside, by which the view on that modern theatre is somewhat narrowed.

I went to the Waterfront to see Paul Weller a while back, and it was the first visit there, and i was a little sceptical to see a band a such a new and clean venue. I was not disappointed!!!! A great venue to see a band, and I'm sure it would be great for any kind of event! I... More

We attended Jimmy Carr on Friday 11th November. The over all concert was brilliant and the smaller audience made it so much better. However upon entering we went to 'Bar 1' my boyfriend stood and qued for over 35 minutes to get a drink. Only to get to the front of the queue to be told no the bar is... More
